Week 31:
We received a great update from SCI - the babies and surro are doing very well.  Our biggest surprise was how much weight the little ones put on!  We couldn't be any happier ;)

Twin I  - 3.8 pounds (1,737 grams)
Twin II - 4.2 pounds (1,905 grams)

My sister arrived on Tuesday & we haven't stopped yet!  Just finished painting the nursery - it is coming together nicely!!  Since we are doing so well with knocking items off the "to-do" list ~ I think we will fit in some tourist sightseeing this weekend!!

Week 29:
We received beautiful photos of our SM, Mrs. J!  She is doing great and we are so thrilled!
That is one big & beautiful belly :)

We have been closely following everyone's blogs and we are so happy to hear of all the babies being born, new pregnancies and are heartbroken for the couples that have received sad news.  We are also keeping our fingers crossed for all the couples cycling right now!!!

We are starting to get very anxious!!  We decided to go ahead and book tickets (even knowing we will likely change them) and applied for our visas.  Aahhhh.....the visa debate.  We applied for tourist visas, but have heard a lot of couples applying for medical visas.  We questioned the Indian Embassy about the correct visa and were told we were not physically having medical procedures and therefore should not apply for the medical visa.........I really hope this is OK......So stressful!!

Next week is my last week of work.....Yahoo.....the following week my sister arrives to help paint, buy & setup........although she sprained her ankle yesterday so I think it will be a low key couple weeks just catching up!! :)  It really has been hard being so far away and not getting to see our families often.

Bring on the next updates.......stay put little babies and we can't wait to meet you!!

Week 28:
We are so happy that our SM & our babies are doing so well!  Our SM has been an absolute trooper and we are very thankful.  Now we are starting to get really excited.  We have told our friends & coworkers and everyone is really happy for us.
These last 2 weeks have been busy & stressful.  I flew to Canada for a week to finish my post-grad designation......all done - just waiting on marks now!  It has been a rough 3 years but thankfully it is done and just in time for our babies!
I am planning on being off work in 2 weeks. With everything going on (including us recently moving to a foreign country) I really need some time to prepare.  My sister is flying over in 2 weeks and we will paint the nursery and go baby shopping!  It will be nice to spend 3 weeks with her and preparing for our little ones......I can't wait :)
On to the good stuff!!  Our last update came just before 27 weeks ~ babies are growing, both weighing in roughly 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds).  Twin II is in breech presentation & Twin I is in cephalic presentation.  9 weeks to go!!
